Today I am sharing a Digi called soccer kid by Morgan Fitzsimons.
Following the theme boys this digi is amazing on my GS's soccer page.
I copic coloured with all the gray and black tones because his team wore black and white. It also pops off the kraft paper background.
The background also is stamped and paint daubed for the rustic look.
Sure hope you enjoyed the blog hop and the fabulous digis we had to share with you. Look forward to seeing you again soon.

I am also using this page for Ann's hexagon challenge at My Sketch World... this is my new hexagon stamp I just purchased from Scrapping Turtle. It adds great depth and texture to my page.
I am also sharing this with Scrap Scene WIP MONDAY.

off on a vacation. Making lunches, driving to school, planning suppers and after school sports is the core of my time. Scrappy time will have to wait until next week.
Welcome to Just Imagine Crafts and the Kreaxions Punches and Circle Cutter.
I have a layout using banners and punches to share today.
I have done these before but today I draw attention to the fact that banners and borders can
be any size. They can drape across the whole page, extent off to one side
or even look like a base to a central photo. ....
and there can be more than one on a page.
On this page I used Kreaxions Punch # 303 and also the fall away piece.
The trick is to punch a full strip, splice between each punch almost through
so you can bend and arch it to fit your page.
On this page I used soft colouring because of the old 1924 photo (Nana is the baby in this one) and it is very special to us.
Hope you have a great day and maybe even a scrappy one...........

tomorrow with some sunshine.. if it shows it's face.
So welcome to Thursday. With Easter past and the on look of
summer I was inspired to make a fun summer card.. full of fun bright
colours, a popping frame for a too cute pair of flip flops,
a touch of doodling, and some
fun Robin's Nest dew drops to represent water... and a cute sentiment ....
the card came together inside a circular ring.... using the Kreaxions Circle Cutter.
I used Kreaxions Punch #913 with inserts C on the corners...
and full punch on the inside circle... all of this
matted with pink to match the sandals.
Sure hope you have a great day .. with a touch of scrappyness too... Bev DT

as the Tutorial Designer at My Sketch World.
I never really know if what I share with you is new or old but
if I have never tried it .. I go with it and hope I can share something
that will interest you and prompt you to try it.
Today is RUBON as a RESIST.
The above photo has 2 rubons on a piece of cardstock. The
fabulous bird and the sentiment.
Now I sprayed it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.
on top of the rubon. Notice how the bright white is popping off the paper.
make my page. I love the finished page .. and especially
love the look of the rubon resist accent as part of the page.
It was perfect touch and was a great part of using the circular part of the sketch.
I used Momenta product on this page and I am going to share this with
Scrap Scene WIP this week. Also used Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions Punches on
this. Kreaxions Punch #303, star template and fall away pieces.
Papers: Momenta PA2253, PA 2254(need to check this one)
Cardstock: Momenta PA 0658, DCWV
Tag: Momenta PA 2395
Punch: Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions #303, Martha Stewart
Template: Star from Kreaxions
Glimmer Mist: Tattered Angel
Now below I thought I'd share the 2nd Rubon Resist that I tried.
This one I am using on a card.
off the excess ink that is on the rubon.
The white part is especially popping again.
The frame and bird definitely are defined again.
I really like the look of this. What and easy and amazing
technique to use with so many of those rubons we all have.
I used cardstock pieces and applied the finished accent to my projects.
It also would work directly on the background of a page or card but you
would have to have an idea exactly where to place it first.
My method just allowed a bit more easy of placement.
Sure hope you liked this today .. be sure to stop by My Sketch World
and share your project with us using this method.

I have been making a few more cards again... but I have never made a shaker card and thought it would be fun. I used the plastic section of a purchased embellishments and cut it to size to tape and glue down.. found some beads and a frame that fit around it to cover the tape and glue it took to hold down the plastic piece. I placed it on the background and it was too dull and rectangular shaped so I found accent paper and punched the edges with Kreaxions #913 and matted it so the punch popped through. It was the outer fussy edge however that made the difference for eye appeal.
This is the inside of the card already for the sentiment or verse..
The close up shows the Punched edge and matting that popped the shaker off the page.I also take advantage of being on the Momenta D-Lite Team and used Momenta product today.
Paper: Momenta PA #0658, PK #2447
Stickers: Momenta PK #2447
Punch: Just Imagine Crafts/Kreaxions #913
Hope you have and great day and see you again soon.. Bev DT

So tomorrow marks the day my only grandson has his birthday
which he also shares with his grandpa. They tease about
who should have a party and who should be recognized for the day.
GS says it's mine now
and DH says but I've had it longer.
They really are too funny about it... we all get a chuckle out of it.
Tonight we are doing supper out to celebrate so this is the card I made for him.
(will do DH's later or tomorrow)
He is a hockey player and his # is 11 and he is 11 tomorrow.. so this
skate photo was draw by GS's dad (my son) back in 1996 and I use
it for guys hockey cards and layouts. I thought this would be a great keepsake for GS.
Paper: Momenta PA 2252, PA 2253
CS: American Crafters
Base card/envelope: ANW Crestwood Inc.
Stickers: Momenta ST 4490

fun bright papers and a great cluster, used inking and the bling is perfect. I really like the large shaped background with the holes... top it with some colourful polka dots and cute photos.
The title has a coat of glossy accents and I was able to use my sewing machine
after months of not having one in Florida.. really love stitching even if
it's with a match and blend colour.
This fun sketch is just one of our Monday sketches from
Let's Get Sketchy. If you'd like to play along and link
your project to share with us .. see the blog.

Hello my name is Bev Code. I am so excited to part of the team as Tutorial Video Designer. I have been following Lucy and My Sketch World since Sept 2009, in Jan. 2010 I was GDT and I have been with her and the members of My Sketch World as DT since Feb. 2010 and love it. This is my home away from home where i share my creations using friends and family in my photos. My husband, 2 boys and families (my 4 grand kids) all support my addiction to scrapping and know that they will have memories to share with those to follow in the pages that I create for them. Sure hope you'll join us .. can't wait to see what you'll create and share with us too.
Here is the April 1st sketch from My Sketch World
Here is my example using the sketch:
I used a photo from 1924 when Nana was just the baby in the carriage. These old photos are so precious as part of our heritage.
Thanks for being here and now its time to head to MSW Blog
